King John's Castle

Experience 800 years of history on King's Island

King John’s Castle is a 13th century Castle on ‘King’s Island’ in the heart of medieval Limerick City. The Castle overlooks the majestic River Shannon offering wonderful views of Limerick City. Discover history at its best, magnificent views and life in Norman times. Explore 800 years of history brought to life in the imaginative historical exhibition, excavated pre-Norman houses, fortifications, siege mines, and the battlement walks.

King John, as "Lord of Ireland" minted his own coins and the Royal moneyer would have struck the coins in the Castle mint. Today you can receive your own special coin as a souvenir of your visit to the Castle. The sights, scenes and sounds of the Castle and its environs all combine to recreate the atmosphere of the era.

King John's Castle is a great location for an informal welcome reception.

The neighbouring "Tavern at the Castle" right next door can be combined to cater for groups up to 150pax.
